TouchOSC is a modular OSC and MIDI control surface for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad by hexler.

It supports sending and receiving Open Sound Control and MIDI messages over Wi-Fi and CoreMIDI inter-app communication and compatible hardware.

The application allows to remote control and receive feedback from software and hardware that implement the OSC or MIDI protocols such as Apple Logic Pro/Express, Ableton Live, Renoise, Pure Data, Max/MSP/Jitter, Max for Live, OSCulator, VDMX, Resolume Avenue/Arena, Modul8, Plogue Bidule, NI Traktor, NI Reaktor, Quartz Composer, Supercollider, vvvv, Derivative TouchDesigner, Isadora and many others.

The interface provides a number of customizable touch controls to send and receive messages:

Faders / Rotary controls / Encoder controls / Push buttons / Toggle buttons / XY pads / Multi-faders / Multi-push / Multi-toggles / Multi-xy pads / LEDs / Labels / Time & battery displays

Additionally the program can send Accelerometer data. The application comes with example layouts and completely custom layouts can be constructed using the free TouchOSC Editor application.

Please browse to for more information, video demonstrations and download the free layout editor application for OS X, Windows and Linux and the free TouchOSC Bridge utility to easily control any MIDI-capable application on your computer.

Top app

Werkt super met ableton live 8 layout. (download gratis via internet) het enigste min punt is dat sommige kleuren slecht of niet te zien zijn in in de launchpad. Het vervangt de hardware zeker niet maar het is een zeer goed en goed koop alternatief.

Flexible and intuitive

Combined with the touchOSC editor and a OSC to MIDI bridge such as osculator this makes for a very effective remote controller for any DAW. Who needs a Lemur?

New: iPad

My favorite OSC controller, I use it with Supercollider and Quartz Composer. The GUI is totally awesome, configuration is easy, all GUI objects respond to messages from the OSC server. The only thing missing was an layout editor, but that has been fixed in the new 1.3 release. The editor (Mac OS X and Windows) is a bit primitive yet, but I hope there will be updates soon. And because you can edit the preset layouts it's easy to create the GUI you need. Kortom, goed nieuws :)

Update: The layout editor is much improved, and the app works on iPad too. I use it for Ableton Live mostly now (with Occulator and junXion to translate OSC into MIDI) and can't wait to buy an iPad.
